Bottle. Drank it for my 35th b-day. Pours like champagne, very sparkly. Light bodied, nice cherry character that sweetens up the tartness of the ale.

Pours a murky orange. My girlfriend didnt like this one as much (yeah for me!). Aroma isnt incredibly sour or overpowering. Awesome sour cherry flavor, wish I could get more of their beers.

bierkoning (13057) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle from Solan, thanks! Orange pinkish color. Cherries, marzipan, leather, oak and grapefruit in the aroma. Sour flavor with oak, hint of cherries and leather. Dry out effect in the aftertaste with leather, caramel, plastic and grapefruit. Astonishing complex, great beer.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2008
375ml bottle batch 003. Pours an awesome murky burnt orange with minimal head and some light lacing left on the Trappist. Insane aromas of sour cherries, red wine and more sour cherries. Flavor was bitter and sour with a hint of sweetness on the back of the throat. One of the best sours Ive had to date.

Its been a long time awaiting. Absolutely the best sour red Ive ever had. Im savoring every drop. Californians have it lucky if they can get this when its on the shelf, or even on tap. A wonderful cherry sour taste. Lovely. Pretty close to perfect.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle, Batch 002: Courtesy of cmr1517...big thanks Chris. A bit of a gusher yielded a murky amber-brown with a medium tan head. Wow...this could be the most intense sour brew Ive had thus far, massive sour cherry aroma with some oak, spiced malts, and granny smith apple notes showing themselves. First taste just annihilated my palate with its brett-infused goodness. Sour as hell with the cherries in the forefront, oak and some underlying malt notes come through as well...dry, lingering finish.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle Batch #3 courtesy tpd975. Pours a hazy amber with a large white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of Pinot Noir, oak, cherries, citrus, and spicy yeast. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin tart mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. This beer is freaking amazing. If you like sours do everything you can to get a taste of this delicious brew.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Hazy orange-yellow pour with a white head. Sour aroma with lots of fruit - grape, cherry citrus as well as the usual sour funk. Sour funky flavor with a touch of sweetness. Lots of cherries and other fruit. Perfect amount of sourness. Slight creamy oakiness to finish. Very winelike and a nice full bodied flavor. Amazing!

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Aromas of tart and acidic citrus, tart cherries, light oak, and some nice funk. Pours light brown with a thin head. This one had notes of tart cherries with a super light sweet note too followed by a moderate tart acidic characteristic. Some oak Dry and tart this was rather insanely good. It was not over the top tart, but was pretty damn tart. I enjoyed the ability to detect the tart cherries and the light sweetness that was there too. I also enjoyed the dry wine-like oak finish and the funk. This might have been my favorite of the three that I ordered. We will have to wait and see until next time. Fan-fucking-tastic!
